Rumors have been swirling that Nikon is gearing up to launch two new Z lenses next week. We always welcome the news of new Z lenses, as filling out the Z lens roadmap is Nikon's surest bet of attracting and retaining photographers to the Nikon Z camera system. Luckily, the two new rumored lenses look particularly exciting.

One of the lenses will apparently be the Nikkor Z 50mm f/1.2 S lens. A nice and fast 50mm is always a welcome prospect – although of course this piece of glass isn't likely to be anywhere near as dramatic as the Nikon Z 58mm f/0.95 S Noct lens, which has a super wide aperture and a weighty price tag to match.
